My time in Wuhan was coming to an end. Sadly, most of us know what happened to this beautiful city after I left. Writing this gives me mixed emotions. Love the fact that I met some awesome people here. I’m also heartbroken to what they recently went through. Either way, this trip gave me a stronger level of respect to the Chinese people. They are very warm and respectful. Compared to the Chinese I met outside of china.
Had one more part of the park to explore. It was another garden. However, it was a little different. Now, I know that panada bears weren’t running around freely here. To my surprise, another animal was.
Once you past the entrance, you see a tree in the middle. Had no idea what type of tree it was. Nor, did I know what the signs were saying. One of the main eye openers that I experienced in china was how beautiful nature is here. When I thought about China, all I knew was from the movies and TV shows. There were only factories and grey apartment buildings. Also, panada bears..(yeah, I’m still a little salty). However, China is much more than that!
As you see in the pictures, China has so many colors. It’s truly a beautiful place. I really recommend going after the virus dies down. Might be best to get travel health insurance. Very different than the normal travel insurance. Don’t really need to explain in detail. I’m sure you all can tell by the name, what is the difference of the two. One focuses on health and the other on flight delays.
Anyways, back to the story. There was a little trail on the side to the garden. Started following up the steps and I felt someone was watching me. You know that gut feeling of someone watching your every move. Kept looking around to see if there was some type of camera nearby. When I found a group of wild domesticated cats in the bushes. Being the cat lover that I am, I started calling for them. Most ran away. Only one stayed looking at me. I wanted to pet it so bad. Of course, I don’t want more complications while going through US immigration. Like why you smuggling cats? Never want to be asked that. I’m sure there are special jails for cat burglars in airports.
Went to the top of the trail. There was a little shrine. I wish I knew what it meant. This little shrine was like a relaxation stop to sit and watch. The trail went on but to get back to the entrance. Truly enjoyed this part of China. Sadly, it was almost time for me to head back to the airport.
Thank you so much for reading! Much love and safe travels! Please keep healthy everyone!
What an incredible adventure. You are very brave. I have friends from China and I can not imagine what they are going through to watch their homeland and family members endure such a pandemic.
unfortunately very shortly you may not need to imagine.
Hopefully we wont know…please stay safe everyone
Getting close. I’m in New York.
Yeah i have from wuhan. It’s sad what happened. Please stay safe. Currently in new york as well. Can’t believe that things are closing down
It would be a lot easier if everyone was “on the same page.” We shouldn’t have to take everything away because people can’t follow safety instructions. 🤞🍎❤️
Lol so true. Like hashing hands
This is so poignant. Thank you.
no problem keep safe!
